Let’s wait all day for Sunday night. The Green Bay Packers make their first appearance on Sunday Night Football in the 2023 season this evening when they host the Kansas City Chiefs. The Packers have worked their way back into the thick of the NFC playoff hunt over the past few weeks and can officially climb into a playoff position with a prime time victory.
This will be the Packers third prime time game this season following one game each on Thursday and Monday nights earlier this season, and they are currently scheduled for one more MNF and another SNF game before the year concludes. The Chiefs, meanwhile, are not scheduled to play in prime time again during the regular season, after playing five night games already and only two games that kicked off before 3:00 PM Central.
The Chiefs currently have a two-game lead on the Denver Broncos in the AFC West division, and the New York Times’ playoff simulator gives them a 98% chance of earning the division title. Now they’re largely trying to play themselves back into contention for the #1 seed, as they sit a half-game back of the Baltimore Ravens and in a tie with the Dolphins and Jaguars, fellow division leaders, for the next spot.
Here are the details for how to tune in for tonight’s prime time matchup.
